It has been confirmed that singer Alanis Morissette will be part of a story arc in Showtime's "Weeds". At the end of the fourth season, Nancy Botwin is surprisingly pregnant with Tijuana mayor Esteban's baby and Alanis' character will have close bond with the story line.
Alanis plays Dr. Audra Kitson who is a "no-nonsense" clinical obstetrician treating Nancy's pregnancy. The character is a large part of the fifth season since she will appear in at least 7 out of the 13 ordered episodes. Furthermore, sources are saying that the acting stint may require Alanis to do "tasteful nudity" as part of her pursuit for Justin Kirk's character, Andy.
This would not be the first TV appearance of Alanis. In 2006 she guest starred in "Nip/Tuck" as Poppy. Also, she was God in feature film "Dogma" and a musical performer in "De-Lovely".
Meanwhile, the season 5 of "Weeds" that will premiere on June 8 deals with "the ups and downs of Esteban's political career, as well as his relationship with Nancy. Loveable loser, Doug, and rebellious teen, Silas, will open a new type of 'club,' and Celia returns to Ren-Mar, bringing with her a powerful job opportunity."
